I want to buy a class set, 30-40 mice (mouses), so the cheaper the better. But obviously durability would be a big plus. I heard they can be had for as little as $1 each, but does anyone know of a reliable source? Thanks.
I used to maintain computer classrooms. Don't cheap out - buy mice that are durable and compatible; it's the user interface that gets the most use. Stick with name brands, optical sensors, and a matte black finish (hides the dirt). PS/2 connectors are OK if your PCs still have those jacks and the mouse cable is long enough to reach the chassis back.
Look for wholesalers or surplus businesses selling bulk Dell or HP -branded Microsoft or Logitech mice.
Logitech M100 USB Optical mice. Usually around $5/ea brand new when bought in bulk.
Been using them in classrooms and computer labs for years and they are durable. I actually usually get the Logitech MK120 Keyboard/Mouse combo for around $10 and just replace them as rule every 3-4 years, but even though the keyboards are usually looking worn from heavy use after that time, I've actually only had 3 out of 500+ mice fail in the past 5 years (and I think it's the wire that failed on those).
